    I highly recommend Dr Furlong not only did she control the chronic pain I had for the last four years she also took care of the many women issue that other surgeons had no idea how to fix. But more importantly Dr. Furlong has excellent bed side manners that you no longer see the medical community. She also makes sure your recovery is pain free and is available for her patients 24 hours. If I had to go thru my surgery again I would not hesitate to go to her. I would describe her a Great Dr.
